Set in Arizona, a cynical scout and an idealistic U.S. Cavalry lieutenant set out to catch a group of Apache renegades lead by the chieftain, Ulzana, in the late 19th century. Filmed when the Vietnam war was a hot topic, this drama offers food for thought about American military policies and questions the once-popular American tenets of patriotism and racism. Burt Lancaster, Bruce Davison and Joaquin Martinez are featured among others in this western drama directed by Robert Aldrich and screen-written by Alan Short.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of Aldrich's finest films, this underestimated Western presents a bleak yet intelligent portrait of the racial warfare of the white men vs. Native Americans and also serves as effective and damning allegory of the American involvement in Vietnam."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A superior western though somewhat ponderous and its action sequences are formulaic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The kind of storyline that suits a cop-vs-serial-killer formula better than a western"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
